Leading battery-metals company Talga Group Ltd (ASX: TLG) has announced that it has qualified for the globally-recognised ISO 9001:2015 certification, covering production and distribution of its graphite and graphene products.
The certification serves as a part of the broader quality assurance program Talga is implementing across its operations in preparation for commercial battery and anode production, and follows approval in Q4 2019, from European Chemicals Agency under the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals regulations for production up to 10 tonnes of graphene per year.
ISO 9001 certification
Talga has been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certification by Europe’s leading inspection verification company BSI. This independent, third-party assurance of quality management systems is a requirement of major automotive, electronics, appliance and coating customers.
ISO 9001:2015 is not simply a set of requirements or standards. The certification is built on the principles of quality management, which include strong customer focus, leadership, engagement of people in process-based decision making using evidence-based business processes and a system approach to continual improvement.
“strictest quality and management systems are required for global-scale manufacturers. The accreditation demonstrates that Talga has excelled in this area”
Talga Group Managing Director Mark Thompson said: “Talga is in advanced stages of product qualification processes across multiple applications, including automotive and electronic device batteries, where the strictest quality and management systems are required for global-scale manufacturers. The accreditation demonstrates that Talga has excelled in this area, delivering into the rigorous standards of international customers, and is a credit to our team working to make the world’s greenest and best lithium-ion battery anodes and graphitic products.”
